Cartographers complained bitterly since Illustrator CS was released that text on a path looked horrible. Kerning and typesetting along a path got a significant downgrade when the new text engine appeared. Now, in CS4, text on a path looks great. So much so that at a recent “sneak” at a cartographer’s show, this feature got a standing ovation.
Any Illustrator CS4 details?

typing CS4 looks almost like typing C64 - like the old commodore 64 (my third computer). Maybe it is time for Adobe to release a version for that computer, so that I don't have to use GEOS GeoPaint or KoalaPainter to make maps anymore...
That brings back fond memories (GEOS). I've never made a map in GeoPaint, but I think it would be a fun challenge.
(A fun challenge that would probably drive me crazy.)
